2-vehicle crash results in multiple deaths

On March 11, four people were killed and numerous others suffered injuries after a two-vehicle collision occurred in southwest Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported that a 2004 Chevrolet pickup truck was heading south on U.S. 81 at 9:18 p.m. when the accident happened.

The pickup truck reportedly crossed the center line and collided with a 2013 Toyota pickup truck. This caused the Chevrolet to catch fire, killing the 21-year-old driver and two passengers, ages 18 and 21. It was not known what caused the driver to cross the center line.

The driver of the Toyota suffered serious injuries to his head, legs and internal organs. He was taken to OU Medical Center by ambulance. His 19-year-old passenger, who was eight months pregnant, was also taken to OU Medical Center. Her unborn child suffered serious injuries and passed away. A 10-year-old boy who was also a passenger in the Toyota was pronounced dead. Two other children, ages 5 and 9, were taken to Duncan Regional Hospital. Both suffered injuries but were considered to be in fair condition by hospital staff.

When fatal motor vehicle accidents occur, the family members who lose a loved one often sustain significant financial consequences in addition to having to deal with the emotions surrounding their loss. In addition to funeral and burial expenses, they may be facing the loss of income from the deceased breadwinner. In the event that the accident was caused by the negligence of another motorist, they may want to have the assistance of an attorney in filing a wrongful death lawsuit seeking compensation for these and other amounts.
